RICE WREATHS

Grade: K-6
Age: 4-10

Submitted by: Carol Turgeon, a teacher at Fourway Community School in Ontario Canada.

Objectives:

Creating Christmas gifts.

What You Need:

  • long grain rice
  • white glue
  • green food coloring
  • margarine or sour cream container
  • plastic lid ( from sour cream)
  • paper clip
  • red beads, sparkle dust, bows
  • individual pictures of children

What You Do:

  1. In a margarine or sour cream container - mix enough glue with about 1/4 cup of rice to make it gooey.

  2. Add food coloring to make a Christmas green and mix well (I give the children plastic gloves so they can use their hands to mix)

  3. Put the mixture on a lid and form it into a wreath.

  4. Stick a paper clip into the back

  5. Let it dry overnight

  6. Take it off the lid and glue red beads in groups of three and some sparkle dust and maybe a bow.

  7. I use the individual pictures and tape them into the middle of the wreath for a great keepsake of grade one
